We are delighted to offer this exceptional and stand-alone property, situated in a popular village between Wells and Wedmore. Rose Court comes to the market for the first time in over 25 years and is the house of a life-time. Steeped in history, with an abundance of character it has been lovingly renovated and maintained by the current owners who have been tremendous custodians of this impressive residence which, at its oldest, dates back almost 250 years. In brief the property comprises of an entrance hall, dining room, drawing room, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, WC, utility room and boiler room to the ground floor, five bedrooms (one with ensuite and dressing room) and two family bathrooms to the 1st floor and a further three bedrooms and family bathroom to the 2nd floor. As one can quite imagine, with such expansive living accommodation, there are endless possibilities as to what any buyer could utilise the space for. There is certainly versatility to create a self-contained annexe should one wish and scope to extend, depending on one's requirements (stpp). The property has occupied a prime spot with Theale since it was built and is as enticing and attractive on the inside as it is outside. The property is entered by a large, bespoke door from the formal front gardens and one is immediately filled with a sense of splendour and delight. The tiled flooring, grand staircase and view through the home are reminiscent of that of a stately home. The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home but the sitting room and particularly the drawing room with views over the gardens can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. As with all homes of this calibre, the formal dining room is perfect for dinner parties and with all the bedrooms offering generous sleeping quarters there is room for many guests. All the rooms have been sympathetically and beautifully decorated to create individual and stylish accommodation, enhancing both the appeal and charm. There are a number of character features which will appeal to the discerning buyer including sash windows, flagstones, coving and stylish tiled flooring to name but a few. For a comfort and cosiness in the cooler months there is a most impressive Aga in the kitchen, bottle gas fire-place in the sitting room and an open Jet Master fireplace in the drawing room. Other important improvements to mention include the recent re-roofing, and complete re-rendering of the property, surely giving reassurance to any buyer looking at a property of this age. This incredible home will be the perfect residence for families who are looking to be in close proximity of excellent schooling and short drive from the city of Wells and the ever popular village of Wedmore. It has plenty of space for multi-generational living and could even work as a boutique hotel/bed and breakfast. Rose Court will inevitably appeal to those looking for a unique, exclusive and truly one-off home. This house must be viewed to appreciate the scale and location.

The sought after village of Theale lies approximately 5 miles to the west of The Cathedral City of Wells and a very short drive from the Saxon Village of Wedmore. The latter offers a fine range of village amenities to include a variety of interesting shops together with most day to day needs to be associated with a larger town. The Cathedral City of Wells is well known for its architectural appeal and excellent educational establishments, both state and private. Theale itself has a church and a village hall. Public houses are available in the neighbouring villages of Wedmore and Panborough. There are good road links to the M5 and also to Bristol Airport along the A38 with Bristol and Bath also commutable and Clarks Village a 20 minute drive to the south. There is excellent and highly regarded state and private schooling at levels available, including Millfield Senior and Prep Schools, Wells Cathedral School, Hugh Sexeys Middle School and Kings of Wessex Academy.

The property is approached via a private driveway giving access to off-road parking for numerous vehicles as well as a stone out-building and side access to the home. To the front of the property is an area of lawned garden bordered by stone-walling, trees and mature shrubs which leads to the main entrance of Rose Court. The rear garden is laid to lawn with a vegetable patch delineated by dwarf hedging. In all the plot equates to circa 1.3 acres. The setting is quite simply stunning and lends itself to alfresco dining and entertaining and has even laid host to a wedding. The space the garden provides lends itself beautifully to keen gardeners and those with children who want the freedom to play and enjoy themselves in private and peaceful surroundings. For those that enjoy outdoor living and hosting in the warmer months, there are few places that offer such an enviable position. The grounds wrap around the entirety of Rose Court giving an additional sense of grandeur and exclusivity.
